Gentlemen
 
Any of you know of a decent rimfire scope that is compact (less than 10 inches)?  Id prefer 6x or 9x zoom.
 
Thanks

Under 10" really limits your choices.

Simmons makes a 4x scope that is 9.5" and a 1.5-5x that is just at 10".  They are both technically shotgun scopes but could easily be used for rimfire if you can live with the diamond reticule and lower power.  Can't speak about the 1.5-5x but the 4x is a decent little scope, and inexpensive.  I picked one up after reading quite a few good reviews on some blackpowder boards.  I use it on my muzzleloader and so far, it has held up very well.

I just played with this one and it worked really well on a 10/22:


It  is longer than 10 inches though.

Burris TImberline scopes are compact enough to fit your spec, but they are not intended as rimfire scopes.  I think they have parallax corrected for 100 yards.
